Be weary (wary?)

Aspen Times writer

Dear Editor:Well, the nuts come out of the barrel from California and spill garbage all over Aspen for us Americans to clean.That’s just what Louisa B. Caucia’s letter, “Aspen’s backbone” (Aspen Times, June 24), is all about folks.She claims Montrose, Calif. as her city, but does she really live in La Crescenta, Calif. as my research indicates?For our Aspen and other Roaring Fork Valley readers, Montrose, Calif. and La Crescenta, Calif. are not cities. They are areas divided by and within the city of Glendale and Los Angeles County. That’s right my old stumping grounds.We Americans realize Caucia is one sick hen when she states, “If Aspen were to deport all its local undocumented workers – including Brits, Australians, Irish and Latinos – the entire Aspen economy would collapse. I’ve always equated Aspen to my native San Francisco. Let’s hope Aspenites … continue their compassionate commitment … to the human condition and social justice.”Caucia doesn’t like Americans folks. There are many in Americans in Glendale, Calif. and Aspen who should be weary of her. Emzy Veazy III, Esq.
